Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Great beach experience. Very good lunch. Decent selection. Good service and fair prices. Flavorful tacos. Fish and chips are some of the best. Large portions. Flaky fresh fish.

My Dad and I had a guide in Sydney for several days and when we were visiting Avoca Beach she brought us here for lunch and it was delicious!

Made a last minute booking on Easter Saturday for 9 people. The cafe was very busy but all our meals and drinks came out together, staff were fantastic and the food was excellent.

Great casual dining, staff pleasant and efficient, seaside ambience - breeze etc, inside or outside dining. Lunch was very tasty, perfectly sized and delivered in good time. Coffee & cake excellent too! Would definitely return - meeting point between Syd & Newcastle.

Four old friends had a catch up for lunch last week at the Point Cafe overlooking Avoca beach. What a fabulous view, with parking close by thankfully as one person in our party was on a walking frame. A good menu range covering all tastes,...beer battered fish and chips for the guys, open Caesar salad for me and the savoury fritters for my friend. Delicious meals, quick service, friendly staff, with big serves, all washed down with a bottle of white wine. A beautiful day, will definitely be back.More

Hands-down the best cafe we’ve found in the area. Over from the UK, we came here last year and loved it and this time we have been back twice already. This place is the best. The staff are so friendly and welcoming. You get to...sit right by the beach and eat delicious food. We don’t want to eat rubbish, so this place has a lot to offer us. So far I have had the tiger prawns (amazing!) served with garlic bread which I was told is Turkish (never had garlic bread that is so light and delicious!) Today I had the squid, also fantastic. My hubbie had the fish and chips and loved it. Went all out today and had desserts. Both gorgeous, but my Affogato knocked spots off one I had in another very expensive boxy place locally the other day.More

Definitely a 'must do' if you are going this way. The position is fabulous right in front of the water (not the road) which is great but the surprising thing was just how good the food was. It was so good we went back to...have lunch as well. Breakfast was probably the best pancakes I have had in years served with real maple syrup, berries, banana fritter and delicious bacon. I had the Salmon fish cakes for lunch and they were completely homemade with a seriously good sauce with salad and asparagus. My friend had a crab taco. The service was warm, fast and friendly. A surprising gem!!More

We were 3 adults, 2 kids, and a dog, and this place was great. Right in the thick of things on the water, next to rock pools, the red & yellow flags, a playground, toilets, etc. The food was excellent, the staff were friendly and...welcoming, lunch was great, all day breakfast, decent coffee, beer and wine; this was a convenient and enjoyable place to eat and recharge between beach sessions.More

Amazing views and friendly service made this a favourite holiday stop. Coffee was delicious as were all the meals. Chocolate frappe a favourite with the kids. The small bowl of chips was a meal in itself and great value at $8. The salt and pepper...calamari entree size was huge- the strips were crispy and served with a light sauce and a coleslaw with a divine dressing. Highly recommend this cafe, can't wait to visit again next trip.More

Prawn tacos sounded delicious. Chips changed to salad - no problem. But the reality! Sloppy, drippy type of coleslaw with 1 sad and lonely prawn. Salad was just more of the same - overdressed and oozy. Not allowing the bill to be paid by two...taps - equal shares - just annoying. I’m local and went often- too many choices to make this mistake againMore
